Beerenberger (1591) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2012
A strong coffee nose, with hints of chocolate and dark fruit. A flat opaque black pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is strong bitter coffee with hints of chocolate, dark fruit sweetness and smoke. There is a bit of alcohol in the finish and a pleasingly slight peppery aftertaste. Full boddied with flat carbonation. Overall, this a rich complex multilayered stout that is worth sampleing again and again!

Pours coffee sable, not much head. Aroma delivers strong molasses, roast malt and licorice tones with a hint of mocha. Sharp flavor features coffee, roast malt, chocolate, molasses, and subtle licorice and peppery notes. Mouthfeel presents decent body and OK fizz. So, how do weasels have a rodeo?

bytemesis (6189) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours opaque black, medium creamy brown head, good lacing. Aroma is coffee, mocha, licorice. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, coffee and cocoa, hints of charred wood, anise. Lingering bitterness, as well as a touch of chili heat that comes on late and lingered to the far finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty solid effort.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Wow! Damn near a 50 point beer. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, dark dried fruits, cherries, light spice and coffee. Taste is a nice mix of roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, vegetal peppers, light sourness/spiciness and a good well balanced bitterness into the finish... Absolutely one of the best beers I’ve had 5o date as the slick mouthfeel on this beer makes it unreal!

JStax (4587) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle pour into a snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has smoke, peppers, caramel, coffee, ash. Taste is smoky and sweet. Thicker mouthfeel with low to moderate carbonation.

wchesser (1807) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from errl forever ago! Thanks, Chris! Dark black, not super viscous but up there. Nose is terrific coffee, dark and burnt malt, light sweet vanilla. Flavor follows nose, smooth coffee, lightly sweet vanilla and dark chocolate, with chipotle just lending a bit of heat without much chipotle flavor. Rich, but not decadent. Smoother than the regular Rodeo, presumably from the better coffee. Good stuff.

Tmoney99 (13077) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, hot spice and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate and spice malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and spice finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.
